Did anyone read the new Youngblood HC?

Im really curious as to how the story was since it was re-written almost from scratch.

A friend is going to let me borrow it. I'm playing catch up now. Just re-read Sleeper and catching up on Booster Gold now.

I'm a Joe Casey whore, so I HAVE to read it.

if i could find it i would.
im a joe casey fan because of one title, WILDCATS. his entire run on that was great and im pissed i (we) never got to see the fruition of the themes he started in that book. he advanced the characters brilliantly.. like spartan and his corporate superhero "make the world better" idealology. so great. so pissed it was cancelled.

Casey's Wildcats was a great read and cut way too short.

Im keeping an eye out for a used copy. Im sure they'll pop up from time to time.

Got my copy, pulled off the plastic wrap, and started reading.

Whoever put this book together needs to be shot.

In the first chapter there are no less than four errors. Either words missing letters or words missing all together. I think in one word ballon there's even a period in the middle of a sentance making it into two awkward half sentances.

God Bless Joe Casey for working on this book. He does what he can with it. His writing takes the original story and makes it better by leaps and bounds but its almost like trying to hammer out the dent in a car door after its been hit by a train. Rob only gives him so much to work with in the original pages. Its still over the top 90's goodness but with a little more punch to it.

And you would think they could tweek the art a little as well. It's re-colored and better than the original but there's a page where Liefled drew a charater with a scar over his left eye, then on the next its on his right eye, then on the same page its back on his left, and so on...

Three chapter to go... I paid my $10... i'm gonna finish it.
